Chavez, whose economy relies heavily on oil sales to the United States, has accused Palmer of dishonoring the Venezuelan government by expressing concerns on several sensitive subjects — including 2008 accusations by the U.S. Treasury Department that three members of Chavez's inner circle helped Colombian rebels by supplying arms and aiding drug-trafficking operations.
Bullshit! Venezuela can sell it's oil anywhere and if you remember he gave free oil to poor people here or at least tried to.
Here is a link to a Reuters article that is only a little bit better.
Venezuela condemned on Thursday the United States' revocation of its ambassador's visa as an "imperial" move by President Barack Obama's government, saying the measure should be immediately overturned.
Not only does this country hate Hugo but we very much despise Evo and the rest of them "socialists" south of us who pose an imminent threat to our way of life up here. Don't make any difference that these people were elected in a democratic process that is better than ours.
In the near future if we could kill every one of these leaders we will do it and that's a fact. The part that makes it even worse is that the dims will agree to it as well.
